Machines were introduced to minimize human labor, to create products that are error free and perfect. But, as the matter of fact, if we think practically, nothing can be perfect. Same is the case with machines, there are some little errors, which can cause failure of it.
Similarly, when we talk about Windows operating system, there are some errors, which can occur due to various reasons.
One of the common error in Windows OS is memory management error that causes blue screen of death and can even result in system crash. There might be several reasons for it to happen, but there is nothing to worry about, memory management BSOD can be resolved easily by using various ways.
So, today in this article we will be talking about some of the ways to fix memory management blue screen error on Windows 10, 8 & 7. But, before that let us know what actually memory management is in operating systems.
What Is Memory Management In Operating Systems?
Well, it is a functionality in Windows operating systems that is used to manage primary memory processes between main memory and disk. It maintains and keep a record of every memory location, whether allocated or not. It also allocates memory to the processes, and once the process is executed, it allocated memory to some other process. However, if error occurs in memory management then the process is stopped, and it may crash OS as well, due to which system displays a blue screen of error (BSOD). Basically, memory management BSOD is all about critical memory error cause while execution of processes.
What Can Cause Memory Management BSOD Error?
There are several reasons for memory management blue screen error in Windows 10/8/7, out of which the most major ones are:
1. Fault in RAM
RAM is one of most major component of PC. It is used in execution of instructions. Basically, all memory related work need RAM to work properly, so if the RAM has some faults or isn’t working properly, then it can cause memory management BSOD on your system.
2. Error In BIOS

3. Registry Issues
Registry stores all the settings, options & information your PC requires to run. And, if somehow registry gets corrupted or damaged, then it may cause memory management error on your system.
4. Outdated hardware
The most common reason for memory management BSOD is outdated hardware. This is because there are programs which require higher configuration to run, but anyhow OS manages to run it. With more load on processor and RAM, it leads to several errors, which might result in crashing of system. Outdated hardware also leads to overheating of whole processing unit that can also affect motherboard later.
